Further to Lorne's comments about three Peregrine Falcons together, I saw three from my verandah at Bondi Junction just after noon the previous Saturday (7/3), passing over Queens Park and Centennial Park, similarly engaged in acrobatics. This followed on from seeing a Brown Goshawk only ten minutes earlier. I see Peregrines reasonably often at home, but mostly singly, and I've seen Brown Goshawks far less frequently from there. Sorry for the delay, but it was Mardi Gras weekend so by the time I thought to post it, I didn't bother. Cheers.

I had three Peregrine Falcons flying together over Surry Hills, near Central Station, Sydney, late last Friday. The birds were raucous and engaged in acrobatics. Very cool. Never seen three together like this before.
